What is the
Joffrey
  BFA
  Program

Joffrey has entered into a very exciting partnership with New Jersey City University (NJCU) and we are now able to offer our students the ability to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree through a joint program starting this year at the school.

Dancers can receive the exceptional training that the Joffrey Ballet School is known for and at the same time work towards a college degree. This is an amazing opportunity for any dancer. A college degree opens up so many doors and gives dancers an advantage not only in their dance career, but after that career is done.

What is Unique About this Program

It allows our students who are still in high school to start earning credits towards their BFA while they are still in high school. Dancers in high school can earn up to three years of credit towards the program.

To put this into perspective a high school student entering the program in their sophomore year would be able to earn 3 years worth of dance credits by the time they finish high school. They would enter the NJCU/Joffrey BFA program with 3 years of dance credits. They would be able to complete their degree at NJCU with one more year of dance credits and 36 academic credits. Student’s also have the ability to transfer in AP credits to reduce the academic courses required.

This program is available to our international students as well. This program is only available to our dancers studying in our New York City location.

Frequently Asked Questions

Program Information

The Ballet Trainee Program of the Joffrey Ballet School is a four year program that is both competitive and intensive. From September through May, this program trains dancers in the classical ballet technique and artistry required for an active career in a professional company. The program demands a deep commitment on the part of the students and is recommended only to those students who are dedicated to working diligently and exclusively towards a professional career in dance.

At the Joffrey Ballet School, you will be exposed to all facets of the dance world, from choreography and music, to staging and costuming. You will see firsthand how all these aspects come together at the school, through the faculty who demand work of a professional grade, as well as the guest teachers and visiting artists with respected dance companies. The Joffrey Ballet School’s Ballet Trainee Program approaches training at a professional level comparable to a professional company environment, yet maintains the nurturing, personalized instruction of a school setting. As one trainee puts it, “You have a lot of people to impress.”

The Ballet Program is designed to develop pre-professional students with a classical ballet and contemporary background, balancing consistency and versatility in both classical and contemporary ballet and dance.  Courses include: Ballet technique; Pointe and Variations; Ballet Repertory; Pas de deux; Character; Horton Technique; Cunningham Technique; Limon Technique; Contemporary Dance; Jazz; Performance Studies; Choreographic Workshops, Kinetic Studies (Body Conditioning); Ballet Methodology; Career Planning; Critical Analysis; Music; Anatomy; Dance History; Health and Nutrition.

The Texas Trainee Program is not accredited with the National Association of Schools of Dance at this time.

This Jazz & Contemporary division at the Joffrey Ballet School is geared toward those dancers who want to focus their training on Jazz and Contemporary styles of movement, while incorporating a wider knowledge of Classical Ballet training and Modern dance.

Students are exposed to a diverse range of styles from both past and present. The student’s attention will be focused on body awareness and creativity to prepare them for careers in education, performance, and choreography in Jazz and Contemporary styles of dance.

Students will be encouraged to embrace and explore a broad range of material that will help each of them develop his or her individual voice as an artist in this evolving art form. The curriculum will consist of both technical and academic/creative classes designed to fully prepare students for careers in dance, dance education, and choreography. Classes will be offered in various styles of Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, Classical Modern, Contemporary Modern, Modern Partnering, Choreography, and Improvisation.

The Joffrey Ballet School prides itself on providing our students with several opportunities to perform. Being a part of a production provides the critical real-world experience necessary to begin a professional dance career. Students perform to sold-out venues in New York City.

Rehearsals are intense and will drive you to your own personal level of perfection. Performing is a key element in any dancer’s experience, knowledge, and pre-professional training.

The casting is determined by the Artistic Director who bases his decision on talent, experience, and the level of training achieved, but everyone will be given a role and/or an opportunity for an understudy position.

Students will have an abundance of opportunities to perform. These opportunities will include an In-Studio performance of class work (October), The Nutcracker (December), and the Spring Performance (May). Students may also be involved in lecture demonstrations in and around our community. Students of the Joffrey Ballet School are coached in and perform the works of our founders Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino, George Balanchine, Twyla Tharp, William Forsythe, and the Petipa repertoire, among many others.

Our annual Spring performance offers a mixed bill that covers a wide selection of dance styles and eras. From the works of Petipa, to Robert Joffrey, to current NYC Dance Artists, the concert is meant to display the versatility in training and artistry for which Joffrey Ballet School is known. The Spring performance is a culmination of a year’s worth of hard work and dedication.

Ballet Trainees are required to participate in our annual Spring performance. Rehearsals begin in the second term, immediately following the Student Choreography Workshop.

Students will have an abundance of opportunities to perform. These opportunities will include various Student Choreography Shows, and the Spring/Winter Performance (May). Students may also be involved in lecture demonstrations in and around our community.

Student Choreography Workshop: This workshop is an opportunity open to all year-round Trainees to learn about the intricacies and challenges of producing choreography. Students are mentored by both faculty and choreographers who help to develop, refine, and rehearse their work. Students are provided with the opportunity to further explore and develop choreographic and performing talents, as well as elements of production. Students are responsible for creating their own work, casting dancers, rehearsing, and costuming. Students may choose to choreograph their own piece or assist another student in developing his or her work. This is an invaluable experience for every dancer.

As a continuation of their classroom technical study, students participating in this workshop will deepen their artistic voice as they experiment with a variety of stimuli to create dance. In addition, they will refine their understanding of the elements and skills of both technique and composition. The Student Choreography Workshop provides a stable foundation from which the student is encouraged to take risks in order to gain knowledge of themselves and others as multi-leveled individuals and artists. They are encouraged to awaken all the senses through a thorough awareness of the body, in communication with the mind. Students are mentored by the Artistic Staff, working one-on-one with our faculty each week leading up to an in-house studio performance.

The Trainee Program is 4 years in length. Dancers receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of the program. For information on our college BFA program CLICK HERE. If entering the program as a high school student, dancers are expected to be working toward high school graduation. All dancers in the Trainee program can earn credit that can be transferred to our BFA program with NJCU.

In the 3rd and 4th years of the Ballet Trainee Program, in addition to their dance classes, students are exposed to and trained in Pedagogy. The purpose is not only to promote greater insight into training but also to provide them with the necessary skills and gain practical experience teaching in the classroom. The Joffrey Ballet School recognizes that professional dancers often make the transition from performing to teaching later in their career or support themselves with teaching during their dance career.

Please note that students are not receiving a certificate in teaching. The pedagogy classes are complementary to their professional dance training. If the student realizes they would prefer to move from professional dancing to teaching due to their exposure to pedagogy principals in this program, the faculty will be available to guide them as to how they can best pursue their new interest.

Attendance for all classes, both technique and academic, is compulsory.  Students who have already attained an equivalent credit may apply for advanced standing, determined at the discretion of the Artistic Director.

Teachers evaluate the students both throughout the year (the Progressive Assessment), and at the end of each Term (the Final Assessment), using a system consisting of a graded letter A to F.

The Progressive Assessment throughout the year is based on a range of criteria including attendance and participation, group discussions and involvement, work ethic, and general standard and progress.

The Final Assessment is based on a written essay, a written or oral test, and a classroom presentation, and the students have to achieve various course objectives.  Some courses require the student to be assessed in front of a panel of instructors.

The Progressive Assessment and the Final Assessment marks are mixed in the ratio of 60% to the Progressive Mark, and 40% to the Final Assessment Mark. The grades are assessed as follows:
Grade Percentage Description
A 90%-100% Work of an outstanding standard. Showing exceptional written, oral and comprehension skills.
B 80%-89% Work of a very high standard. Showing higher than average written, oral and comprehension skills.
C 70%-79% Work of a high standard. Showing potential for increased written, oral and comprehension skills.
D 60%-69% Work of a medium standard. Showing average written, oral and comprehension skills.
F 59% and below Work of a low standard. Showing poor written, oral and comprehension skills.
Students at risk of failing are identified early, and are counseled. Students are encouraged to seek a progress report from their classroom teacher at any time through the Term. Each student receives a list of the expected competencies which they need to gain at the end of the course, and a clear expectation of results is articulated. Students who do not achieve a grade D or higher do not pass.

The Joffrey Ballet School faculty meets regularly to discuss students’ needs and progress, and each student will receive career counseling. In addition, students are provided with evaluations and one-on-one meetings with the Artistic Director during each term.

Evaluations will include assessments of technical progress, focus, comprehension of concepts, application, and retention of corrections, work ethic, performance quality, and attendance.

We recognize the need to be mentored and guided beyond corrections and conversations with faculty. When training at the Joffrey Ballet School, you are assigned a mentor to assist you in your numerous career decisions, as well as to guide you through your day-to-day life.

The mentors are dancers themselves with over fifteen years of professional dance experience. You will be assigned a mentor within the first few weeks of attending the program.
